I have always done some form of art, even as a young child. I would draw and work with pastels and charcoal. When I was 12, my grandparents gave me my first set of oil paints as a Christmas gift. My teachers at that time were the books I would look through and later videos on various painting techniques. Once I came to Lemon Street Gallery I found a great teacher. Inspired by the travels in our motor home, I have painted in both oil and acrylic. I am so glad to be a part of Lemon Street Gallery.
